From the bustling port of Mgarr the 20 minute ferry journey offers sea views of the rough shoreline of Gozo & Comino. Arrive at the Blue Lagoon and walk towards the Comino Tower with fine views of Cominotto, the minor islands and caves. The route towards the old Redoubt, complete with cannon guarding the South Comino Channel, cuts through unspoiled areas of native flora through the Island's central valley to the beach at Santa Marja Bay before you return to the Blue Lagoon. The ferry then brings you back to Mgarr, and from here you can either take a bus back to Xaghra, or a taxi which normally costs under €20 https://www.publictransport.com.mt/.

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
